Unexpected 'pop-up' ... Has the forum been attacked ?

#1 Post by MichaelG. » Sat Aug 03, 2019 3:23 pm

Several times today, when switching between pages on the forum; this mysterious 'pop-up' has displayed:

It only appears when using this forum, so I don't think my machine has been infected with anything ... but it is rather worrying.

Can anyone advise ?

Relax, everything is fine. I embedded an image that's hosted on a private server but I forgot it normally asks for login credentials to see the content. Give me a second and I will fix it.
